PCWorld saca en el blog de uno de los columnistas, Phil Shapiro [1] un anuncio donde Obama declara que OpenOffice.org es Libre y robusto y suficiente para el 99% de las necesidades del gobierno…. Lo que obtendra las oficinas federales es un segundo cheque de estimulo economico. Obtendras mayor productividiad a menor costo, borren eso, mayor productividad sin generar costo alguno.

Today is an important day for freedom. With Obama’s winning of the Democratic presidential nomination, all indications are that freedom is coming. It’s coming in the form of another economic stimulus check. Another economic stimulus check? So soon after the last one?

Yes, and here is how it’s going to happen. One of Obama’s first executive acts will be to standardize all Federal offices to OpenOffice.org

OpenOffice is free, robust, stable and more than sufficient for 99 percent of government work. If any particular government office requires Microsoft Office, they’ll be able to purchase it — after explaining in a few sentences why OpenOffice is insufficient for their needs.

What do you get when all Federal offices standardize on OpenOffice? The effect of this is a second economic stimulus check. You get increased productivity at lower cost. Scratch that. You get increased productivity at no-cost.

But far more than that, you put this nation and the world on the path towards accepting free software as wholly mainstream. Within a few months of the Federal government standardizing on OpenOffice, several large U.S. corporations will standardize on OpenOffice. School districts will soon follow. State governments, more often followers than leaders, will pull up the rear.

Brazil, a country with great foresight and leadership, has standardized free software in their schools. That means 100 million students in Brazil will have several years more experience using free software than students in the United States. In a competitive, flat world market, schools in the United States cannot afford to be left behind like that.

Our students will be using Windows while Brazilian students will be using Linux. We can’t afford to be falling that far behind.

The new leadership coming to Washington has the difficult task of correcting some very serious mistakes made in the past. A small, but important, first step is to switch all Federal agencies to free software. When you make wise choices, you become known for your wisdom.

Our civilization has reached a digital tipping point. Old way of doing things are no longer acceptable. And so we say: Free at last. Free at last. Thank God almighty we are free at last.
